A part of Eto’o’s foundation statement reads:

“The Samuel Eto’o Foundation wishes to be precise that this action aims to further support to Cameroonian citizens from a health perspective than food. The primary objective is to slow the progress of the pandemic.”

The former Barcelona FC player posted a picture of relief materials being distributed on his Instagram page, with the caption, ‘I will give my life to continue to serve you. Thank you, my team.’
